2 Timothy 2:1-13 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 You then, my son,1 be strong2 in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 And the things you have heard me say3 in the presence of many witnesses4 entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. 3 Endure hardship with us5 like a good soldier6 of Christ Jesus. 4 No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs--he wants to please his commanding officer. 5 Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive the victor's crown7 unless he competes according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.8 7 Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this. 8 Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead,9 descended from David.10 This is my gospel,11 9 for which I am suffering12 even to the point of being chained13 like a criminal. But God's word14 is not chained. 10 Therefore I endure everything15 for the sake of the elect,16 that they too may obtain the salvation17 that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.18 11 Here is a trustworthy saying:19 If we died with him, we will also live with him;20 12 if we endure, we will also reign with him.21 If we disown him, he will also disown us;22 13 if we are faithless, he will remain faithful,23 for he cannot disown himself.
